  1. RE: an Israeli government policy mode which I call “if wishing made it so.” – R.S.

    “When you wish upon a star
    Makes no difference who you are
    Anything your heart desires
    Will come to you

    If your heart is in your dream
    No request is too extreme
    When you wish upon a star
    As dreamers do

    Like a bolt out of the blue
    Fate steps in and sees you through
    When you wish upon a star
    Your dreams come true”

    from Pinocchio – “When You Wish Upon A Star” Lyrics

  2. Wishful thinking on possible Russian support for a tighter, more multilateral sanctions regime does not appear to be solely property of the United States, then.

    I presume this must be a ploy by which Israel hopes to put pressure on Russia to adopt a policy that it (Israel) wants it (Russia) to adopt. If so, this seems awfully feeble. Medvedev could brush this off as an elephant swats a fly.

    He could certainly do that, and more. A majority of Israeli oil imports come from Russia and its central Asian neighbors around the Caspian Sea.
